    Thanks for the info, I'm definetly not shooting that one. I did email Federal and do still have the original box with the lot number. i dont carry the cheap stuff for self defense, only for use at the range.I did email Federal but I dont expect to hear back from them for a week or so. as soon as I hear from them I'lll post it here. Thanks again for the info.

    Definitely a strange looking round. Definitely not something you'd want to shoot.

    Years ago, when CCI first brought out the Blaser Aluminum case I had one blow out the side. CCI paid to have the gun sent back to Ruger to be inspected and sent me 10 boxes of ammo.

    First off, it's a magazine, not a "clip." Secondly, oiling magazines causes them to collect dirt and fuzzies even faster. If you feel you must "lube" a magazine, at least use a dry lube or graphite powder. As for the round, it looks like it got stuck in the forming process a couple of times.

    Looks like the rim was formed twice. Sometimes they stop production to make an adjustment, and rounds caught in the forming or loading process can get Frankensteined.
    Maybe you should play the lottery tonight.

    1. Don't fire it.

    2. Inform the manufacturer w/lot #.

    3. A clip is used to load a magazine.

    Send am email with a pic to the manufacturer, not only will you get a free box of ammo or two, but you may help find a problem in their QA process, maybe even call attention to a problem that warrants a recall.

    I contacted the manufacturer and they requested the lot number,pics and some additional information. hopefully there arent any more of these around. It just gets me how it made it all the way through QC checks and inspections and ended up in my hands. I would expect this from some foreign made ammo but not from anything made in the U.S.

    Well, if you really want to get technical the thread should be titled: What Happened To My Cartridge Case? ~ Because the actual bullet looks fine but, let's not pick too many nits.

    Looks like your ammo went to Jenny Craig,
    I have never seen a case like that in my life and I shoot thousands of rounds every year,definitely a manufacturing defect.
    Your "MAGAZINES" don't need to be oiled,oil can attract and hold crap like sand/grit and cause a malfunction.

    (3) Show it to Walmart, but DON'T give it back to them. Instead, make a big deal out of how something like this could have easily (in reality) blown your gun up and severly injured you. When faced with a major potential product liability lawsuit, they may very well offer a lot more as a "settlement" than just another box of cheap ammo.

    How in the heck did you miss THAT when loading your magazine? You didn't FEEL it? Pay attention next time.

    Lets stick to the subject at hand shall we? I ask how this case was formed,not whether it is called a magazine or a clip, not how I missed it, or anything else. ONLY how this was formed.

    It LOOKS like and error of some kind in the lathe that cuts the extraction groove, but no one here REALLY knows. How's that for an answer? :)
